New Chase Account Authorization Issues

I received the notice that I had to authorize my Chase accounts. All went fine on the Chase site. When I return to Quicken, the accounts are listed and the dropdown menu shows "link to current account." My Chase accounts aren't listed as a choice. Now what?

    Hi @cmarshall52

    To answer your last question - the new Chase connection method - "Express Web Connect+" does NOT support bill payments through the bank (Chase in this case).  So, if you want to continue to pay bills in Quicken, you will need to use Quicken Bill Pay, or another bank that still supports the "Direct Connect" method.

    Let me know if you have any followups.

    Hello everyone,

    I am sorry that the symptoms of this issue with disappearing categories and also the problem with repeated authorization prompts are remaining for some users. Thank you for alerting us to this here on the Quicken Community, and for continuing to speak with us about this. 

    It would be best for all users still experiencing the problems detailed in this Discussion - specifically categories that have disappeared and recurring authorization prompts after you have already migrated - to reach out to Quicken Support with the information provided here. They will want to document those cases where these problems are ongoing, and will be able to troubleshoot them in greater detail, with the resources available at their disposal.

    I hope that helps!

    Thank you,

    Quicken Jared

    I just paid my annual fee to update Quicken. Now I'm unable to link my Chase accounts to download directly into Quicken. What should I do?

    There seems to be a LOT of problems with the new Quicken/Chase connection. There's multiple threads with multiple issues:
    1) cannot link to existing accounts
    2) Quicken gives gray/blank screen and freezes
    seem to be the two most common

    Unfortunately it seems Quicken doesn't have a solution yet (makes me wonder if they even tested this with Chase).

    After accepting the new connection update to my Chase account, I was given the option to link my account to a new account or an existing account. I selected existing, but there was no option to link to my current Chase Account.

    I noticed this as well so I then selected not to add the account. I deselected online services and tried to set up for online which locked up the program multiple times. I eventually used the 'add account' interface and it took me through the same new Chase authorization process. It defaulted to 'link' to existing but again didn't show my existing account. However I took a leap of faith and it matched up.

    Similar problem. Only 1 of our 4 Chase accounts completed the new connection process. Quicken freezes every time I try to update the other accounts.

    Chase has authorized my four accounts for Quicken. Quicken does not provide the option to link all four to existing Quicken accounts and for any that I can link does not download anything from Chase. I've tried resetting, reauthorizing, deleting and readding - nothing works. All that does is remove any links to Quicken that have been set up. Right now no Chase accounts are linked to (long existing) Quicken accounts. Attempts to download from Chase via One Step Update bring up a blank screen.

    My husband has a different Quicken data file and his Chase conversion was seamless. I've done the same things with my own Quicken data file and cannot get any Chase account to update properly in Quicken. Please help!

    Same problem here. Chase lists current acct number as well as former acct number (new card issued as a result of fraud), Quicken will NOT let me link either account to my existing Chase acct. When you attempt to select an account to link to, it shows 3 unrelated accounts. Sigh. Always something when Quicken does an upgrade.

    One heads up to other users is be sure to follow the "+ add account" -- not the "online services setup" approach. My first attempt at your instruction failed because I incorrectly went to "online services setup" thinking that was effectively the same as "+ add account". But "+ add account" worked for me while "online services setup" did not.
    There might be other differences, but one of the main different between "add account" and "online services setup" is that "add account" ignores what settings you have in the account for things like the financial institution name and account number.  Whereas "online service setup" tries to maintain them.  When you are making a major change to the account like this you don't want the old information to get into the way.  So, you either have to go into the General tab on the Account Details dialog and clear out that information before trying to reactivate or better yet just use "Add Account" (you can find it on Tools -> Add Account, or use the + on the account bar).

    Ugh. I've also been wrangling with this since it came out. So, today I figured out that I should deactivate then set up online services...which ended in Quicken going into this weird "crash loop" alternating between a semi-visible setup dialogue and total black screen. I've had to use task manager 3 times to get out of the Quicken program. My frustration level is off the charts.

    Jokie, try my instruction which said specifically "do not use online services setup" -- instead use "+ account" on the tool bar. Good luck.

    After "reauthorizing" the Chase accounts in Quicken, I was unable to "link" to existing accounts. My existing Chase accounts were not visible to "link." As a result, I now have new accounts set up and all my historical data for these accounts are not in the "active account." How to bring over historical account data? This type of historical account data conversion has come up in numerous situations. You should be able to "move" transactions to a different Quicken account (which is really the same bank account "in real life"). How do I bring over all the historical Chase account data to the "newly established account" with this reauthorization process?
  • TVT77
    TVT77 Member ✭✭
    kbrown914, I had same issue, as I explained in the first post on this string. Turns out you must first deactivate your existing accounts before they will show up on your "link" list. Hopefully you have a backup file so you can attempt a new conversion from scratch.

    What a disaster by Quicken. I've followed all of the instructions here and get the wheel of death and black screen over and over. I've been a user for 30 years and this is just terrible.

    This is essentially what worked for me. As others have pointed out, going through the process of authorizing with Chase will result in Quicken trying to link your online Chase accounts to Quicken accounts that aren't connected online (which is a Quicken bug). Deactivating online setup with your Chase accounts and then trying to "Activate downloads" will result in Quicken showing a grey screen that you can't get out of until you kill the program through Task Manager (another Quicken bug).

    Here's what I did that worked:

    (Make a backup of your Quicken file if you haven't done so already)
    1. Go through the Chase authorization process
    2. Deactivate online services for each Chase account
    3. Close Quicken then reopen. Not sure if this was needed, but I did it anyway.
    4. Go to "Account List" then "Add Account"
    5. Choose the "Chase" logo
    6. Go through the Chase authorization process again. The accounts you authorized before should already be registered.
    7. Now Quicken should allow you to link the Chase online accounts with your Quicken Chase accounts.

    The next time I updated my Chase accounts, it also re-downloaded all transactions from as early as May, so that's fun. I chose the "Accept All Matched" option and deleted the duplicates from my "Downloaded Transactions" list.

    I also noticed that for my two credit card accounts, it changed the opening balance from zero to some random dollar amount. It was screwing up my ability to reconcile these accounts after downloading.

    What a mess! I hope these bugs can be fixed soon.

    I may have spoken too soon... While I successfully got the accounts to link using steps outlined by @UKR and @heycasey and Quicken APPEARS to connect to Chase, no transactions have been downloaded since 8/12. I looked on chase.com and there are indeed transactions that have cleared that should have been downloaded to Quicken. I redid the entire process again, and still nothing.

    Is anyone actually receiving downloaded transactions?

    Here is what worked for me (I have four Chase credit accounts linked to the same Chase login). Disconnect all 4. Connect on one which takes me to Chase to approve. Link the one I am working on and link any others that show up. This appears to work for the one I reconnected not the others. Disconnect the 3 that are still not working, do same thing with one of those. Rinse and repeat.
  • Yeah I got the Chase issue here too. I trie do the new authorization and it did not list my Chase account as the one to link to. So I thought I would deauthorize the account and then try to link again and it frozen when I deauthorized the Chase account and I had to close through Task Manager. Any time I try to now link it to Chase via eather the box at the bottom when Chase account is selected or under the Account's Edit menu. Has anyone figure out how to get around this? All my other online accounts from AMEX, Fidelity, CaptialOne, etc are still continuing to bring down transactions.

    I mean to say the entire program freezes up anytime I try to link to a chase account. Today I was able to link to PNC and that worked so I know it is something related to Chase.
